Well, I'll be the first to point it out, but in RMAing something you broke, you're wronging the company to whom you're returning the "defective' merchandise.

Not only do some of you do this, but you ADVERTISE your actions and PROMOTE them to others! MY GOD! What is wrong with this?

Did it ever occur to those guilty of this action that SOMEBODY has to pay for it? Just because you avoid the cost doesn't mean somebody else won't. In the end of the RMA loop, somebody pays.

Let's say AMD takes the hit, just in case I'm wrong. Newegg sends them back to AMD and AMD says, "We'll reimburse you" or something like that. So now AMD took a hit. But guess what? They know that. So what do they do?

They raise to prices on CPUs, on retail products, and then vendors hike up their prices, not only to cover the increased cost of obtaining the processor or video card, but because they're losing money too, so they increase their mark up. Who pays for that? We do . . .

with great speed comes great responsibility. If you know you broke the hardware by your actions, it's not the right thing to do to try and force RMA :/

Blind, you broke the card by abnormal use... you know that. By doing an RMA for a product which you broke, you'll drive up the price

lol and u believe that **** if i can call it that ?
look im gone tell u a little story about rma !(dutch sorry)
het is een warme zomerdag en je gaat met je auto in kopen doen , je heb mayonese mee . hope klaar met winkelen steekt alles in de goed verhitte auto door de zon . je gaat nog tanken onder weg of iets anders , je zit klein half uur onder baan .
je komt thuis en je bakt je frietjes , je gaat er wat mayonese op doen en ho die is slecht . maar je zegt ik heb die pas gekocht je gaat de volgende dag terug naar de winkel en vraagt meteen een nieuwe want die eerste was slecht .
nu ga je meteen naar huis met de mayonese en die word dus niet slecht door de warmt , kan een winkel uit zoeken of beter nog zullen die uit vissen of je etens waar meteen naar huis brengt en in de koelte legt ? dont think so .

als je beetje na denkt wordje slimmer

kzit niets voor niets in de voeding hoor en omruilen enzo heb ik onder de knie .
daarom dat zei zoals bakkers met het forfistelsel werken voor hun verliezen te beperken , het forfistelsel wil ik wel uit leggen als het moet .

u analogie trekt op de ballen.

de correct BLind versie:
het is een zomerdag en je gaat met je auto in kopen doen , je heb mayonese mee . hope klaar met winkelen steekt alles in de goed verhitte auto door de zon. Je stop onderweg, neemt die mayo uit de wagen, gooit er wat mee rond, drilt paar gaatjes in deksel, gooi em in een meer; vis em er weer uit. Doe mooi alle gaatjes weer dicht in het deksel, niets meer te zien..

je komt thuis en je bakt je frietjes , je gaat er wat mayonese op doen en ho die is slecht . maar je zegt ik heb die pas gekocht je gaat de volgende dag terug naar de winkel en vraagt meteen een nieuwe want die eerste was "slecht ".

if you're sure that the card is not broken due to your actions RMA is valid for sure. But if you think that you might have caused the card to stop working....
